  • as3-signals

    Signals is a new approach for AS3 events, inspired by C# events and signals/slots in Qt.

    The Preact team released signals. As someone who doesn't like the complexity/uniqueness of Hooks, it feels a lot more like the simplicity of Svelte. It also reminds me of Robert Penner of easing equation fame's Signals library for ActionScript 3 he modeled after C#'s event handling.

  • Spring Boot

    Spring Boot

    We've seen this framework forking happen a lot as good ideas are remixed like Aurelia via Angular, Derw via Elm, Restify via Express, and Spring Boot via Spring to name a few. It's interesting to me this obsession with performance that Preact has with their ability to provide a simple API. That said, I am in no way convinced this'll solve the architecture problem. Without at least guidance, or more importantly, a framework + docs on how to utilize Signals at scale, you'll just end up with a random mess. Still, it's awesome how far they've come, and it's neat to see them still innovating years later.

  • Zigi

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!
